Back from Ypres where we were showcasing Reliquary and Bees! the two outdoor parts of our 6-Impossible Things collaboration with Artizani. The festival went well for us with both pieces warmly recieved. There were 63 companies participating and many bookers and agents. We were well looked after and the festival staff have an impressive ‘can do’ attitude, they even whistled up a scuba diver who could re-fill our air tanks. James took this excellent photo of the audience ‘raining’ around two kilos of rice onto Reliquary from all around the atrium.
The Fountain Machine is coming out of retirement and I have been re painting and generally checking everything is working. The machine was made by Jonathan Wolfenden and was one of the first water shows we made. You can see this lovely clanking black machine at Stockton Riverside and Mouth Of The Tyne festival.
